The Rangers acquired outfielder Mike Carp on a waiver claim from Boston, and will give him time at first base and in left field in a trial run for the 2015 roster.

Carp, a left-handed hitter with some power and experience in the American League West, is expected to report Monday in Chicago after the Red Sox put him on trade waivers Friday and assigned him to the Rangers.

“We envision him getting time at first base and corner outfield, probably more left field than right,” assistant general manager Thad Levine said. “Like we’ve been doing with other players, we’re going to audition Mike and see if he can be part of a winning situation in 2015 and beyond and what role he’d be playing in that.”

The Rangers moved right-hander Alexi Ogando to the 60-day disabled list to clear a spot for Carp on the 40-man roster and will likely move out a pitcher Monday to create a spot on the 25-man roster.
